According to a recent report from The Daily Beast, Donald Trump is raging and furious over the rollout of his Truth Social media platform as it has been full of glitches and much lower sign-up numbers than he had hoped for.

Asawin Suebsaeng and Adam Rawnsley of The Beast called Truth Social an “embarrassing dud,” and noted that Trump is making his displeasure known with rants and profanity laced tirades directed at those around him:

“In recent weeks, sources have heard the former president on the phone swearing gratuitously and asking things like, ‘What the f*ck is going on’ with Truth Social,” the report states. “He’s repeatedly groused about the negative press and the less-than-stellar optics of the rollout, these sources said. And he’s demanded to know why more people aren’t using it—why the app isn’t swiftly dominating the competition.”

Suebsaeng and Rawnsley continue:

“The Daily Beast reviewed analyses of visits to Truth Social’s performed by SimilarWeb, which tracks website traffic from public and private sources. The company’s figures for the MAGA social network—while only an estimate based on incomplete data—are nonetheless anemic,” the report states. “SimilarWeb’s estimates show a sharp spike of around 2 million daily visits to the site when it first debuted, before traffic dipped to an average of approximately 300,000 visits each day, putting the site on par with Gettr. Meanwhile, the far-right Gab has averaged around 650,000 daily average visits in the same time period.”

The main issue with Truth Social seems to be the waitlist for sign-ups, but according to the report, even worse than that is the fact that when users are able to login, they aren’t staying around:

“The odd sluggishness of the waitlist could also explain why, at this early stage of Trump’s website, the MAGA fans who have visited Truth Social also don’t tend to stay very long, according to SimilarWeb’s analytical tools. The company estimates that the average visitor to Trump’s site stays for just 90 seconds—a far cry from the seven minutes users tend to spend on Gettr and nine minutes spent on Gab.”

Trump hasn’t made much public effort himself to help with the networks’ exposure, as Axios noted:

“Trump hasn’t posted a single time since the launch, despite an international crisis that has captivated the country. Instead, he’s given his comments to radio and TV hosts.”
